Roy Lichtenstein was commissioned to paint the Oval Office as part of the Artists for Freedom of Expression project, which benefited the Democratic National Committee during the 1992 Clinton/ Gore campaign. Lichtenstein studied the interior of the Oval Office in the White House to include as many details as possible. He released the print in 1992, which was later chosen by the Presidential Inaugural Committee as one of six commemorative posters. The upcoming Fine Prints & Photographs Online sale, presented by Skinner, features The Oval Office by Lichtenstein. The print employs black outlines, primary colors, and Ben-Day dots, typical of Lichtenstein’s works.
Jasper Johns’ technical experimentation and style place him at the forefront of American art. His paintings laid the groundwork for Pop Art, Minimalism, and Conceptual art. An untitled piece by Johns is one of the highlighted lots in this event. The auction also showcases a portfolio of 24 photographs by Danny Lyon and Marc Chagall’s 1952 piece titled Mère et enfant devant Notre-Dame.
